Wait what? A plant the size of the Statue of Liberty!?!? The giant Redwood tree is truly a sight to see. Only located in Northern California, the Redwood trees can get to the height of 375 feet with a diameter of 20 feet. The redwood doesn’t just spring up from seed over night, though; some are known to be over 2000 years old. Speaking of their seeds, the seed of a Redwood is only 3mm long. That's a height gain of over 3.7 million percent! Mind. Blown. On a daily basis these trees move hundreds of gallons of water up their trunks, mostly a source of the fog that rolls in from the Ocean. Their extreme resistance to natural threats like fire and insects is in part due to their bark that can get to up a foot thick!
